Deep roots.

November 4, 2008

There’s something to be said about trees with deep roots.

There’s no denying the reality of the elements.  There’s no denying the reality of the effects of seasonal changes on the tree.  But the tree’s roots reach deep and sustain the tree through every season.

I’m praying for deeper roots as I grow.  Roots that reach deep in the ground of His person, His Word, and His character.

There are seasons that a woman physically goes through that tempt her to fall and rise with her emotions, to reflect on the curse and her mortality more than on the Redeemer, and to heed her physical condition above her spiritual calling.

There’s no denying the struggle is real, but so is her Creator and her Helper.

Deep roots.  That what is unseen may sustain her through what is seen.  In every season.
